Crafting plans for the New Year.

What do I want to craft in 2018? Oh my there is a really long list. 
First I want to finish Baker Beach. It is soooo close.
I have tried to cast on this infinity scarf 3 4 times. I will get it going and then have a new knit project to work on. (I cast on again last night and have the first row knitted).
I also want to finish my Granny Square Rose Afghan.
I have two felt kit projects that I can't share right now, but that I really want to finish before next Christmas. I will be starting these shortly. I will share my progress, but I won't be able to tell you what they are as they will be surprise gifts for my children. 

I just purchased the fabric to work on these two Christmas pieces.
I won these patterns over two years ago. The one on the left comes with the floss and jingle bells.
I also bought the fabric to start this big cross-stitch project for my daughter. 
This is going to take several years just like Baker Beach. I thought it was smaller, but it is actually larger than Baker Beach. I will start it once Baker Beach is completed.

I want to make a cowl with this yarn that I almost forgot that I bought in Saratoga this year.

I am going to start a quilt for my daughter. I think I have decided on the pattern though I will have to add about 9 stars in order to make it into a queen-sized quilt.
 I will start searching for the fabric in the Spring so that I can concentrate on the sewing when I am off from school in the Summer. My daughter likes the color palette that is given, but wants it to be less Christmas-like.

There are other projects that I would like to get to, but I think I will stop my list here as this many projects may not even be possible.
 Finishing the quilting on this baby quilt
 and finishing the stitching on the Autumn church embroidery that has been a UFO for so long may happen. This project is further along than the photo shows. The trees above the fence are mostly completed.
If I feel like it I will pick these last two up, but they are not planned finishes for 2018.

So that is my list. I am sure there will be other projects that catch my eye and are added along the way. There always are. 

Thanks for stopping by!
